Northwest MHTTC Celebrates
Native American Heritage Month
November is Native American Heritage Month
The Northwest MHTTC sits on the traditional lands of the Duwamish and Suquamish people. We acknowledge the original inhabitants of this place past and present and honor with gratitude the lands and Tribes. To celebrate Native American Heritage Month, we are sharing the following information and resources:
- The Native Center for Behavioral Health is a research center at the University of Iowa College of Public Health committed to developing programs to support the behavioral health workforce in Native American and Alaska Native communities across the country. Currently the center’s projects include three technology transfer programs funded by SAMHSA in the areas of addiction (ATTC), mental health (MHTTC), and prevention (PTTC), as well as tribal opioid response technical assistance (TOR TA), mental health technical assistance for K-12 schools (MHTTC-Supplement), and a Tribal College and University Initiative.
